Download Sullivans Travels (1941)
Sullivan is a successful, spoiled, and naive director of fluff films, with a heart-o-gold, who decides he wants to make a film about the troubles of the downtrodden poor. Much to the chagrin of his producers, he sets off in tramp’s clothing with a single dime in his pocket to experience poverty first-hand, and gets some reality shock.Joel McCrea plays director John Sullivan who’s tired of making silly comedies and musicals for his studio. He wants to make films of social significance with a message about the troubles in today’s world.
Problem is that he doesn’t know anything about poverty and unemployment, he’s a rich kid who’s been to boarding school. So off he sets, several times it turns out, to discover how the other half lives.That last time he sets out is a bit unplanned and through a combination of circumstances he winds up on a prison chain gang in some southern state. He learns some really profound lessons from that experience.
But that’s the serious side of Sullivan’s Travels. Before that the film has some really gut splitting funny moments like McCrea learning about the speed of a whippet tank, being accused of stealing his own car. But my favorite is when he falls in the clutches of spinsters Elmira Sessions and Esther Howard. McCrea sets out to learn about poverty and deprivation and the two sisters see him as the answer to some poverty and deprivation they’ve been suffering for some time. Maybe the chain gang didn’t look so bad.
